Easter Seals does many programs/projects to help families with children who are ill or have special needs. One of those programs in the Timber Pointe Outdoor Center, located at 20 Timber Pointe Rd, Hudson, IL, which is near Bloomington Lake. They will be having an Adventure Day Camp throughout the summer and have a lot of great stuff planned. This camp is a safe and fun environment for kids who may not be able to do things like you and I can. It is centered around them having adventures and being a kid. They are looking for camp counselors and hiring for the summer season.

This is from Easter Seals website:

Timber Pointe Outdoor Center is the premier resource in the state of Illinois for providing specialized outdoor recreational, experiential and family programs for individuals with disabilities and illnesses in a fun, safe and accessible environment.In addition to these inclusive programs, we offer integrated programming for typically-developing siblings and peers.  Whatever the need, it is said that Timber Pointe Outdoor Center is a magical place serving some of the neatest people in the world.Timber Pointe Outdoor Center offers programs throughout the year.  Summer programming, in particular, gives way to many opportunities for children and adults.  Over 1,200 participants will attend one or more programs in a given summer.  These programs include Easter Seals residential and day programs, Adventure Day Camp, contracted partner groups and rental groups.Each session includes traditional camp activities such as swimming, fishing, hiking, canoeing, a pontoon boat ride, arts & crafts, target sports, barnyard animals, high ropes, zip-line and horseback riding.  We strive to create an experience that is inclusive, stimulating and educational while providing opportunities that might otherwise seem impossible due to physical limitations, developmental delays or illnesses.

Please go to Easter Seals website or Timber Pointe's Facebook page for more information on signing up for camp, being a camp counselor, working at the camp seasonally, or volunteering/donating. Thank you, Stephanie Leverton, for letting me know about this wonderful camp.
